“Provenance” Solo Exhibition by Kevin Peterson

Kevin Peterson’s personal story does not stray far from the harsh reality of his new exhibition, “Provenance”, which opened last weekend at CAVE Gallery. Kevin rediscovered his love and passion for creating art while in a drug/alcohol treatment facility. “My paintings are about trauma, fear and loneliness and the strength that it takes to survive and thrive,” Kevin shared. Each artwork aims to contrast the untainted, young, and innocent against the backdrop of a warn, ragged, and defiled world. His current “Provenance” series of mixed media acrylic, oil paintings, and found metal, deals with issues of race- comparing subjects such as threatened wild specifies to urban children against textured graffiti. Despite their tainted environments, they appear at ease, blowing bubbles and curtseying to a distant horizon. “Provenance” by Kevin Peterson exhibits at CAVE Gallery, Venice CA, from July 8 – August 6, 2011.
